The Others

The others are the people who influence our lives but who we have no control over. Social media means that problems are shared, we feel the suffering of an external crisis but act only in intangible ways. Every good deed is a selfish one.

In the future these media will allow for empathy without gratification. A social network is a support network.

Your concerns were for your inner circle, but now the global village, the inner circle is forever expanding and you unwillingly adopt responsibility for the others.
